Our on-farm apprenticeships provide a solid foundation in sustainable agricultural practices.
Founded in 2007, our apprentice program is designed to provide a solid foundation in regenerative agriculture and additional training in managerial skills for aspiring farmers with some previous experience. Each year, we welcome a new cohort of apprentices to our Farm in Cold Spring, NY for a 9-month Vegetable Apprenticeship or Livestock Apprenticeship. Through a combination of classroom and in-field instruction, apprentices gain experience with the broad array of skills needed for success in managing a regenerative farm. We have trained close to 50 aspiring young farmers to date, a majority of whom have continued careers in agriculture and local food systems.
The Glynwood Farm Apprenticeship begins in early March and ends in December. We begin accepting applications for the new year in the fall, and interview on a rolling basis.
Applications are closed for our 2021 Apprenticeship. We encourage you to apply next season!
